World Mission Sunday Materials
“Here I Am, Send Me” is this year’s World Mission Sunday theme which takes place on the weekend of October 17/18. It is a celebration and collection for struggling mission diocese overseas and at home, everywhere. So the celebration will include Catholic Home Missions which was shifted this year from April to World Mission Sunday in October.
